3:03am
of no return area on wednesday. this was by horse back riders who then alerted. hundreds of officers over a various area of woods and rocky terrain. the disappearance led to a rare amber alert where california authorities sent blanket text messages to mobile phones alerting them to be on the lookout for anderson and dimaggio. brett anderson will be reunited with his daughter. very shortly after the news he described himself as being ecstatic, a massive public outpouring of support for the andersons. this is after police say his wife and young son were killed by dimaggio. the kidnappers in san diego last sunday. it's too soon to say when they will return to san diego and medical evaluations are going to take a few days. her safe rescue the best outcome

3:05am
better ways of communicating, it's not unusual and won't be unusual going forward to get police agencies and smaller police agencies involved. what happened and i can tell you exactly how they tracked this guy down. we knew this guy was going towards canada or mexico. after following him and putting out several reports, including the amber alert that went out now, blanket amber alert to several police departments including rural police departments we knew this guy was probably headed somewhere north. there was a guy that was riding a horse the other day, a horseback rider. he actually confronted dimaggio and hannah. because of the reports in the media, he remembered this. as a result he decided to give the cops a call. >> we know by air also, rod, that these tactical agents at the north end of morehead lake have been tracking him from the air. how early do they know his location and how did this unfold from the air to the ground.
3:06am
>> that's an excellent question. here is what happened and the tip that came. two days ago, late wednesday, early thursday, his vehicle was recovered. remember, he was driving a small toyota. that was recovered but the license plate was removed. police investigators say either he's taken another vehicle somewhere or carjacked somebody or on foot. that area up there they found them in idaho is a very mountainous area. you kind of have to be familiar with that area. what they decided to do was set up a dragnet in the entire area. the dragnet worked. what they were able to do is close in on him. the guys up in the helicopters, they actually saw some smoke rising from small areas down there. that's when they sent the fbi s.w.a.t. agents in and came and confronted them at that point. >> rod, did the acts handle this properly. i read there was going to be an investigation. any time an agent fires a weapon, there has to be an investigation.
3:07am
>> you're exactly right. when i was flying back from d.c. where i was from i saw a number of agents heading out that way because they are going to conduct an investigation. that is normal procedure. i can tell you from looking at this case, it looked to me as if they handled this case professionally. we knew this guy was going to go out with a bang. look what he had done with the murders of the little boy and the woman. we knew this guy was going to go out in a blaze. the fbi was prepared for it. >> unbelievable story. shocking story. thanks for your expertise. we appreciate it. >> they did a great job getting her out safely as well. headlines overnight, carnage across iraq. a string of car bombings leaving 69 people dead, dozens more injured. the attacks in iraq targeting families, celebrating the end of the holy month of ramadan. there are signs the attacks were coordinated by al qaeda. many happened within an hour of one another, cafes and markets. the u.s. condemned the attacks and is now offering a $10 million reward for any

3:15am
president obama canceled a face-to-face meeting with russian president vladimir putin over putin's position to grant asylum to nsa leaker edward snowden. my next guest said it's the right direction but can't undo five years the president spent remaking the image into one perceived around the globe as weak. fox news contributor linda chavez. thanks for joining us this morning. >> great to be with you. >> i think a lot of people voted for president obama in 2008 the first time with the sincere expectation his election would make america more popular around
3:16am
the globe. that hasn't happened. why? >> it hasn't happened. the president said he was going to remake america's image in the world. i think a lot of people thought because he did have a charismatic personality, certainly the president himself believes himself to be charismatic, he was going to be able to win more friends for america, that america would suddenly be beloved by all. what the president seems not to understand, what is most important in terms of a country's standing is that you are respected not necessarily liked. so the president's effort to make everyone like us i think has made us look weak. >> so it's had the opposite effect? >> that's exactly right. what's happened is, the united states is perceived as, first of all, tenuous about making decisions. we had what happened in egypt, for example, the administration was really i think very slow and has still been slow to
3:17am
understand the muslim brotherhood was not democratic. we had the president drawing lines in the sand about syria saying the united states would not stand for the use of chemical weapons. that was going to be a red line. and yet nothing happens after that. so it's no surprise that vladimir putin decided, well, you know, there was this guy with all these nice secrets in a computer, and he was going to give him asylum and basically thumb his nose at the president of the united states. he knows there's really no consequences for it. yes, the meeting has been canceled. the summit that was going to occur. but frankly, i think it's almost too late to try to rebuild our image and the president, i think, has done great damage to the image in the world. >> you really get a sense when the president believes america is weaker, the world is safer. if we had fewer nuclear weapons, we're less bellicose that the world will somehow be more
3:18am
placid. is that true? >> the president comes out of the left. the left believes that the u.s. is sometimes a bully. they don't believe in american exceptionalism, doesn't believe united states is different than other countries. i think, as i said, the president really wants to make america liked and loved, and what's really necessary is respect. so i think that's happened is the president in his effort to appease other countries, to make us appear like we are not the leaders of the world, i think he's actually diminished our standing. >> yeah. if it weren't for a strong america, you wouldn't have a peaceful world, as far as i can tell. linda chavez, thanks for joining us. >> thank you, tucker. yet more trouble for yankee star alex rodriguez. why the embattled faces a fine from his team.

3:24am
processed carbohydrates. >> no processed foods. >> no processed food is a way to start. we have it broken down by color. start with red. tomatoes. >> red is lycopene, pigment that gives food coloring, a potent antioxidant. it can increase the build up of fatty plaque in the arteries, arthrosclerosis. >> what about citrus. >> think fiber. it works like a sticky glue i think so in test i think so to get cholesterol so you have increased absorption of cholesterol. >> we have bananas, we go through a bushel of these with my kids. >> think potassium, an electrolyte that can balance blood pressure in the appropriate amounts. >> green, asparagus and bell peppers. >> this increases an amino acid

3:48am
health information going to like once it's implemented. >> you're right. the database of your life, what is it going to look like. one of the things people have to realize is data exists today. it's at the irs, v.a., social security administration. but what they are talking about doing is unprecedented. they are talking about creating this one-stop shot, so if you sit down to see if you have eligibility to be in the system they are going to look at seven department's information, state systems and determine your eligibility all in one place, one desktop, lightning speed fast. >> your entire life moved from all of these different agencies, which may not have been secure as the stands now, now in one place making it easy for people to access. i've been seeing on the show, i think i brought it up last week. yes, i'm concerned about our government. we know what's going on with the nsa. what about the chinese, other governments who infiltrated parts of our computer systems already gaining access to my
3:49am
family's health care? we don't have safety mechanisms in place yet as far as i understand. >> you're absolutely right. maybe they are not safe today. no system is unhackable. every system can be penetrated. so when i hear terms like never been done before and one-stop shop, the first thing i think about is, it's a one-stop shop for hackers. it is hacker's haven. we've made it simple. they can go to one place. >> inspector general, we're not getting time lines, no ready when they roll this out to test this. your advice on keeping it secure. if this was a business, our government was run like a private business, how would you advise them to keep it safe? >> we faced this with companies all the time and i faced it as a ceo. it's not uncommon for dates to slip ann business like this. if this were a business, i would say, get the tessing team in
3:50am
here and ask them, would you bet your career on this you can test it accurately for privacy and security and get the fix in on time. testing officials are very proud. the second, three points you want to look at. the first is, you will be hacked. no if, you will be. have you created trap doors so you corner them off and don't let them run off with data. the second is have you had good guy and good girl hackers, white hat hackers come in and hack you like the bad guys and tell you what they found. the last thing, this is one of the things that gets overlooked. what type of training were you doing for the people? i was encouraged to see in the federal register they are going to see privacy training for employees. there's another element, fraud. we want to make sure people who are trained to know the person on the other end of the phone or internet is really who they are trying to be, right? >> absolutely.

3:55am
>> it's pretty tough. i found out that i could do it, but that it would be pretty dull to do because you'd be eating a lot of the same thing. in my case i had a lot of venison and a lot of wild rice put by. i realized while i could have survived off of that, it would be pretty dull to do and even duller to write about, and i'm betting even duller to read about. so what i did was branch out. in addition to try to further my own skills at foraging and growing a garden, hunting and fishing, i went and i sort of profiled people for whom getting their own food was not a stunt but just part of their daily life. >> what's the weirdest thing you ate in the course of reporting for this book? >> caribou eyeballs are up there. >> how are they? >> pretty good actually. >> crunchy? liquid center? >> i was eating at a banquet big

good morning to you. today is sunday, august 11th 6789 i'm ainslie earhart filling in f in. we just spoke to hannah anderson's father who was about to see his daughter for the very first time since she was kidnapped. what he had to say straight ahead. the irs is still targeting the president's political enemies and now going after small businesses, too. those groups are fighting back this morning. the latest on the president's
4:01am
phony scandal that just won't go away. >> don't take another ceo tim armstrong's picture without his permission. >> i'm very specific about this, past experience -- put that camera down right now. abel, you're fired. out. >> the leaked firing and conference call now going viral. hey, don't take my picture. vito, don't take my picture. you're fired. i can't do that. "fox & friends" starts right now. i don't have that kind of power. good morning to you. we began with a fox news alert. the missing california teenager hannah anderson is safe this morning after her alleged kidnapper shot dead by the fbi agents in the woods of idaho.
4:02am
this morning an exclusive interview with her father. dominic live with the very latest. good morning. what can you tell us? >> good morning. 16-year-old hannah has not only been rescued by the fbi who saved her said she had no apparent injuries. that's very good news instead. that's what the assessment after the manhunt for hannah came to a deadly conclusion in the idaho wilderness. an fbi tactical team shot james dimaggio dead after the pair was spotted at a campsite. 40 miles east of town. dimaggio abducted hannah last sunday after police say he killed her mother and young brother in his home outside san diego. that led to an unusual amber alert, authorities sending out a text message to the public in the middle of the night alerting them to this kidnapping and issuing a safety warning to the public where it was saying her
4:03am
father brett is expected to be reunited with her this morning. >> something we'll have to take day by day and see what kind of help she's going to need and what kind of help for that i'm going to need. we'll move on from there. we've got plenty of things we need to do. >> the most worrying bit of all, it's unknown if she's aware that her mother and her 8-year-old brother have been murdered by dimaggio last sunday. he set fire to his home and their bodies were discovered inside. a five-day search that stretched from canada to mexico. they were seen in the idaho wilderness by trekkers and yet to learn really about the circumstances of dimaggio being shot dead yesterday. the authorities haven't explained whether there was an exchange of gunfire or he was attempting to flee the scene. dimaggio is a friend of e family for 16 years. speculation the anniversary was triggered by the anniversary of his father's suicide. investigators not comment
4:04am
ongoing that for now. they have to investigate the scene. really the focus this morning say the feds is also making sure hannah gets all the physical and emotional care that she needs going forward. back to you guys. >> dominic, thank you. more than 250 police officers and fbi agents stormed the woods in idaho killing james dimaggio and rescuing the kidnapped california teenager hannah anderson, ending the desperate week long manhunt. >> so how might police have responded if this were a hostage situation. joining us former navy s.e.a.l. and special agent. good to see you this morning. your assessment of what unfolded in this situation. seems like fbi handled this pretty well. >> the same group you saw do this was the same group that was at the boston bombing situation. also earlier in the year there was a child taken hostage off a bus. that's the same hostage rescue team involved. >> it's a tactical team.
4:05am
>> tactical team similar to a military style team. they react to things inside the continental united states. >> it's an enormous team, 250. is this conventional for this time of operation. >> 250 would not normally be the number of hostage rescue operators there. you're looking at a task force environment. this is really an example of when all of law enforcement gets together, from the amber alert when it initially happened, from the 911 operators all the way up to the very, very top, everything worked exactly the way it should. people came together, law enforcement put their arguments aside and worked in really a task force unit. >> so from the hostage perspective, how do they know -- obviously she's a hostage. she's been kidnapped. out there alone in the woods near this lake. how do they know what's going on in that situation. we know they had helicopters looking down. that's how we were able to make that assessment.
4:06am
from a hostage perspective, take us from that entire process. >> from the hostage or -- >> what would you guys be doing? >> when the fbi gets involved, this the great thing about fbi, local law enforcement, really the heroes on the ground. the fbi worked closely in task force units with local law enforcement. when the fbi gets involved at this level, they bring every asset they have to bear. so you're looking at helicopters, possibly infrared drones, whatever they have. you have these individuals trained at such a high level that they can take a shot from a helicopter, they can take a shot from the ground. lots of tactical units are trained this way. when we say 250 officers that are there, what they do, they mobilize. in that area, you can't move very fast. once they moved into that area, they knew they were probably going to be located within a 5 mile, 10 mile radius, if they are not an experienced trekker. it's a very hostile environment.
4:07am
>> what about hannah. we were talking to him earlier. he said he hasn't spoken to his daughter on the phone. he hasn't talked to his daughter. why is that? are they still doing the investigation? they don't want her to talk to her dad yet? >> could be. going to a hospital environment, so on, so forth. he's in san diego. to get him there to her, we don't really know what's unfolding behind the scenes as far as that goes. i'm really thinking and hoping this was not a case where she fell into cohorts with the guy. from what i heard, you really reacted the way you should react when you're a hostage. you stay calm, maintain whatever commitment you have, whether it be to flee, get out of your restraints and run or stay there and stay calm, you have to commit to that when you're a hostage. >> what are rules of engagement for a tactical team? would they be able to shoot
4:08am
dimaggio when he was a threat to hannah, a threat to them. >> great question. the fbi's use of force policy, what it states is the totality of the circumstances determines the threat level. in this case we have an individual who has murdered two people. he's on the run with a girl, possibly booby trapped, weapons. the entire totality of the circumstances says he's a threat. when they come upon the individual, if he makes any moves, you really basically have the ability to take whatever you deem necessary. >> it could be a sniper shot that took this guy out. >> we like to say eliminate the threat. >> eliminate the threat. >> jonathan, so good to see you. jonathan runs a company. he took me hostage as they were taking executives through a boot camp. it was fascinating. >> if you remember when you were
4:09am
in the truck and i actually kidnapped you, i asked you on video i said, how do you feel right now? you said, this is awesome. i said, how do i feel from a hostage point of view. >> i would be a nervous wreck. >> we told you stay calm. if you can't get out of the situation, you can't fight the situation. once you commit to staying calm, you have to stay to that. when it comes time to move, you do it with what we call in the special forces community with violence of action. you make the decision and you move. >> jonathan, we hope this doesn't have to happen much. thank you so much for coming in and sharing your thoughts. >> these guys are the best at what they do. >> they are along with our navy s.e.a.l.s, too. you're pretty tough. thank you. now to headlines, two suspected members of al qaeda killed in the latest drone strike in yemen. the ninth drone strike in two weeks. strikes have left at least 38 suspected militants dead.

light. not only is the agency still apparently targeting conservatives, but now they are going after small businesses as well. what will it take to rein in the irs and where is the ability? joining us executive director for american center for law and justice. we should mention they represent 41 conservative groups who say they were targeted by the irs. jordan, thanks for joining us. >> morning, tucker. >> this is till going on. that boggles the mind. >> first the irs agent admitting to congressional investigators if you are a tea party group and applied today, you'd be getting the same kind of delays, the same kind of treatment as the group we represent because they are incapable of the irs of self-correcting. they cannot figure out how to not only after they acknowledge problems, which they didn't acknowledge fully and lied about in their explanation about who was response incidental initially for the targeting, but
4:17am
then they can't actually go back to fix it. this is after the 30-day review after the new acting commissioner of the irs who was appointed by president obama, who said we didn't see anybody do anything intentionally wrong. we called the bluff of the irs here. we called their bluff. we tried to get our clients to self-certify. we're being nice at the irs. you can self-certify since you've had to wait two and a half, three year. we looked eight it. wait, self-certifying, they have to meet a higher standard, 60/40, nonpolitical required by law and them having to self-certify. so they will always have to worry about the irs coming back and saying, you know, you were self-certificate fighted. lets make sure you meet the requirements. what did it show? the irs after months could not figure out a plan to answer the group's applications. by the way, i point out. yes is an answer and i think all these groups deserve it at this point. no is an answer.
4:18am
they got neither. >> here is my obvious question. where is congress in this? why should it fall to you and nonprofits. as far as i understand republicans hold the house of representatives. why are they not holding the irs responsible and stopping these abuses now? >> i think the house committees have done a very good job of getting information. this information helps our lawsuit that we represent the clients. the issue they are supposed to be a criminal investigation, tucker, not because house republicans demanded it. three days after lois lerner answered what i consider a phony question that was planted by her friend at a legal convention, three months ago yesterday, three months and a day, after that there was supposed to be a criminal investigation announced by attorney general eric holder. there's the key, i think. that's why congress has to keep doing their job. the administration defending clients in our lawsuit, u.s. attorney's office defends irs at
4:19am
doj, also falls under doj the fbi who is supposed to be investigating them. they said in a letter to us when they asked for an extension, tucker, the reason they needed an extension in the civil case response to our complaint, there's an ongoing criminal investigation. i will still say, this is good as of today, not one of our clients has been contacted in this so-called fbi investigation. >> it's just unbelievable. just when you thought it couldn't get more shocking it does and we're grateful you're there chronicling it. thanks for joining us. >> thanks, tucker. could climate change make us violent. a new study warmer temperatures might lead to war ultimately. is that bogus? a fair and balanced debate coming up. would you sign up to go to mars if you knew you would never come back? of course you wouldn't. but a shocking number of people disagree. they want to go on that mission. has the country gone crazy? details ahead.

4:25am
as a result of that. do you buy it? >> i think we have to really sort of break down the study. it's not necessarily that we're suddenly going to turn into murderers or start beating our husbands and things like that. more what they are looking at is changes in rainfall patterns and changes in heat so that what you're going to be getting is crop failures. crop failures we've seen in the past, you know, in 2010 because of the heat wave in russia we had a crop failure. limited -- they lost 40% of the weight. so they refused to export. places like egypt very reliant on russian wheat, suddenly there were riots. these are the kinds of things they are talking about. >> this study in the journal of science, we've had these shifts in history and they led to violence. do you disagree with the study,
4:26am
findings? >> i disagree with the study. climate changes contribute to changes in human behavior and social conflict. it's very difficult for historians to find -- to place cause and effect. this is a social science study that does a bunch of number crunching and comes up with very small changes in human behavior. i think it's basically junk social science. >> linda, to that point, junk social science. there may be other factors in play here. sure, it was hotter. lets be honest. there was a crumbling government. there were other issues at play. >> one of the people who did the study was marshall burk, an economist at uc berkeley. he did a previous study that looked at what happened in africa. they did number crunching here. what they found for every degree rise in fahrenheit, you had a 50% increase in conflict. i agree with myron in that he
4:27am
said they hadn't found a real cause and effect and the researchers admitted as much. this is sort of like where smoking was in the 1930s. the researchers could see a correlation between smoking and cancer but they really didn't understand the mechanism. this is sort of an opening volley to sort of look at this. one of the things we do know is that changing climate will contribute to crop failures, will contribute to famine, and this can create conflict and violence. >> myron, i'll give you the final word here. 50% increase, that seems significant. >> no, we don't know that. times of human stress in historical times have been cooler temperatures and crop failures in the temperate zone. if you look at the little ice age that started in the 14th century and continued into the 19th century. that was a time of great adversity, crop failures, violence, wars, compare that to the medieval warming period, a

welcome back to "fox & friends" on this sunday morning, if you're just waking up, we had a chance to speak with brett anderson now being reunited with his daughter hannah anderson after the shoot-out last night with james dimaggio. the fbi swooping in on him. we don't know the details. we've had experts on what unfolded when the fbi descended on that guy, a sniper shoot-out took this guy out. you can imagine brett getting no sleep, up early with us. >> just remarkable and horrifying story. apparently a friend of the family, james dimaggio abducted brett anderson's daughter and apparently murdered his wife and 8-year-old son. all of this unfolding piecemeal over the last week in our interview. brett anderson said he was not contacted by authorities.
4:34am
he learned this from his cousin who saw something on the internet. it dawned on him his whole family, his wife, son killed and his daughter abducted. >> a mix of emotions. not only did he lose his wife and his 8-year-old son but learned today his daughter was okay and he'll be reunited with her. we spoke with him, what his wife was like. >> my wife was a very loving person and would bend her back for anybody. she was a holistic health professional. my son was my buddy. he wore his heart on his sleeve. if he had $2, he would take three kids to the store with him and share it with everybody. loved to fish and play football
4:35am
and video games and was a pretty decent student. i loved him very much. i loved them both very much. >> heartbreaking. >> my buddy, loved to fish. >> one important thing he said, we talked about amber alerts. a lot of people may have noticed under smartphone at&t and others have uped the phone without telling you they are doing it. they are adding amber alert technology right spot phone. it's on by default. that means when one of these amber alerts happens, your phone starts freaking out and buzzing. that's what happened in this case. they were going to track this guy down and find him. people were getting amber alerts on the cell phones. that led to this guy being caught by the fbi. >> what did the amber alert say? >> i've gotten a few when they come through. it surprises me. amber alert, blue nissan heading down this way. will give description of a license plate, some basic information, be on the lookout, where to call if you notice this
4:36am
car. short time later another amber alert coming through, this guy has been spotted. thank you. very important technology. >> a witness was in the woods riding horseback and saw a man and a girl, went home, saw the amber alert, saw the news stories about this missing teenager, the 16-year-old girl. he called police and said she looks very familiar. i think that's the man and woman -- or the man and teenager i saw in the woods. >> brett said to us this morning, if you get these amber alerts, pay attention to them. >> he hasn't talked to his daughter yet. the investigation continues. police are not letting him do that. he's flying from nashville. he's going to be reunited with his daughter. he said the first thing he wants to do is hug her and tell her he loves her. now to other headlines this morning. we have some new video out. this is out of cairo. 18 out of the 19 u.s. embassies across the east, middle east and
4:37am
north africa are now back open again after being shut down for a potential terror attack. the u.s. embassy in yemen will stay closed over ongoing concerns about violence there. the embassies were closed last week after american intelligence officers intercepted a message between top al qaeda operatives about plans for a major attack. a new report says the pilot of the helicopter that crashed in rural pennsylvania last month was not certified to fly in foggy conditions. all five people on board were killed, including a 3-year-old boy. the ntsb says there were no indications that the pilot got a weather briefing before taking off but noted heavy fog around the time of that crash. the pilot told air traffic controllers he was flying only using on board instruments, something he was not licensed to do before losing control. the pilot has not yet been identified. forget about hearing you've got mail, take a photo of aol ceo tim armstrong without
4:38am
permission and you'll hear, you got fired. listen to this shocking conference call now going viral. >> you think what's going on right now is a joke and you want to joke around about it, you should pick your stuff up and leave patch today. the reason is, and i'm being very specific about this is patch from an experience -- abel, put that camera down right now. abel, you're fired. out. >> a cruel irony, the conference call was about layoffs at patch another hyper local news network. the employee fired in front of 1,000 co-workers. the creative director who took photos of meetings to post online. those are headlines. now toss it outside to rick and clayton. >> thank you, ainsley. summer is the time for fun in the sup and trying to make it to the beach as much as possible. how do you protect your not so cheap gadgets when you get to the pool or toilet.

4:46am
christianity. what is it about presentes hall's world history that has parents so riled up. >> school board member concerned about the seemingly slanted context. when did you first learn about this and what did you do? >> i first learned we had the textbook in brevard schools a week and a half ago and i've been looking into the matter every since. >> we want to put on a screen an example of the bias you found in the book. christian battles described as massacres while muslim battles are called takeovers. that's pretty bald example of bias. whose attention tu bring this to? >> well, at this point, the group of concerned community members brought it to my attention. then i'm going to be bringing it to my board meeting tuesday night at 5:30. >> now you ordered the book yourself. what did you find? >> i did find several things that did concern me.
4:47am
starting right off at the very is a gentleman who is part of a group on institute of religious and hasidic values. on the surface that sounds like it would be a very innocuous group. if you do a little digging, you find out this gentleman renamed this. it used to be called the council on islamic studies. he's been quoted saying he wants to promote a bloodless revolution in america in order to change american curriculum in textbooks. i find that very concerning. when you thumb through the textbook, you look at the christianity section you see small print. you see items quoting some believed he was the messiah, in reference to jesus or he called himself the son of god, which is very appropriate in the textbook. when you're speaking of islam
4:48am
you see mohammed's message or mohammed becomes a prophet, worse in my opinion. what is portrayed as a description of religion in one part of the book takes a very different direction when you're talking about islam. here is another part. in reference to mohammed and his armies taking on medina in modern saudi arabia, the book says people happily accepted islam as their way of life. does that include the people who are murdered for not accepting it or no? >> that's the sanitizing in the textbook that has me concerned. the war, regardless of who fights the war, is ugly. bad things happen, people do bad things. there's no point sanitizing that in our textbooks. i want the children to have the facts regardless of which group initiated the conflict, which group is fighting, we need to give our children the facts. >> bottom line, you're concerned how christian and jewish battles are described in the book.
4:49am
what's your next move? are you trying to get this book pulled? where do you stand? >> keep in mind i'm one of five and i need a majority moving forward. the first step is a school board meeting monday night at 5:30. i can discuss this with my board mexico. if three of the five are concerned about the textbook we can develop a plan at that time to move forward and make changes. >> keep us up to date, will you, amy? we'll check back in with you to see what your progress is as this board meeting unfolds. this is outrageous. >> absolutely. can i tell you if people out there watching are upset and angry about this, take this and put it into something positive. take that energy and put it into the public schools. i believe in public schools. this is a wakeup thing for everybody in the community to get involved. >> that's so true. when parents are involved, schools are good. >> thank you. it's a pleasure talking to you. president obama playing politics with our troops telling disabled vets they might not get

well, we all know that we should have a healthy relationship with our foods. it's probably not a good idea to run to the ice cream every time you feel blue or when your boyfriend breaks your heart, but
4:54am
how about if you tell -- if we tell you that there are some times when food is the answer to what ails you? and here with some details is the editor of "shape" magazine, bahar. thanks for being with us. >> thanks for having me. >> you're going to go through some of the foods we should eat. >> it happens to all of us. and typically the answer -- we think we want ice cream or candy. it makes you feel better. >> comfort food. >> that's what you think. instead at "shape" we recommend something healthier that's going to do a better job of making you feel better. and this is sweet potatoes. they're a great and nutritious source of carbohydrates. and carbohydrates help to stimulate serotonin. and that is the chemical that's going to help boost your mood. so what you want to do is just go ahead and bake or boil or steam some sweet potatoes. they taste good and they're good for you, and they will make you feel better. >> and you can cut them to look like french fries, put them on a
4:55am
baking sheet, put them in the oven with a little salt. >> love sweet potatoes. a healthier option foresure. >> what if you can't sleep? it's the middle of the night and you need to go back to bed and you can't. >> i couldn't sleep last night. i should have had hummus. it actually is made from chickpeas which contain tryptophan. a lot of us associate tryptophan with turkey and thanksgiving. >> right. >> but the good news is foods like hummus actually have an even larger quantity of tryptophan. and that is going to help make you sleepy and hopefully you will fall right to bed. >> i was shocked and had it with a glass of wine and you're out for the rest of the night. >> yes. but careful with the wine and alcohol consumption because if you drink too much, especially women, you get tired in the beginning. but then you have that sort of restless sleep. so that's not quality sleep. >> that makes sense. when your muscles are aching, when you have a good workout or when you've been working in the yard, what should you do? >> well, a lot of us at "shape" magazine, we are all about exercising. and we're really excited because
4:56am
tart cherry juice has antioxidants. this is really great with muscle recovery. and it may help reduce muscle soreness as well. so you want to try to have tart cherry juice before and after your workout, especially if you're a marathon runner. some studies have shown that it really does help. it's made there cherries. >> where do you buy it? >> i think you can get this at whole foods or other specialty stores. make sure you're getting the tart cherry juice. >> the ones i buy in the frozen packs are the sweet cherries. >> this is a different type of cherry. it's a little bit sour but a little sweet at the same time. >> now, a lot of people get migraines. what do you recommend? >> women, sometimes we get menstrual migraines. a really good option is to add a little more spinach into your diet because spinach has magnesium. some studies have found that may help relieve your menstrual or typical migraines. you can actually try a supplement with spinach. i'm sorry, with magnesium. >> good advice.

good sunday morning to you. it's august 11th. i'm filling in for alison this morning. we begin with a fox news alert. while you were sleep, 16-year-old hannah anderson was found safe in idaho. her abducteder killed in a confrontation with more than 250 police and fbi agents. we just talked to her father who is on his way to be reunited with her. his emotional reaction straight ahead. and she's an instant multimillionaire, but this new jersey woman isn't quitting her day job any time soon, but her husband is. the selfless act of one of ocean 16's powerball winner, perhaps the greatest wife in america. plus, a toddler who's become an internet singing sensation.

♪ ♪ the truth is marching on >> we're going to introduce you to ella mae and her greatest hits. "fox & friends" hour three starts right now. we begin this morning with a fox news alert. missing california teen hannah anderson is safe this morning after alleged kidnapper shot dead by fbi agents in the woods of idaho. this morning an exclusive interview with hannah's father just before he left to be reunited with his daughter. >> dominic is live in los angeles with the very latest for us. good morning, dominic. >> good morning to you. hannah's father, brett anderson,
5:02am
didn't know the rescue operation was under way at the time. it was 3:20 in the afternoon yesterday in idaho when his 16-year-old daughter, hannah, was rescued by an fbi tactical team. and her kidnapper, of course, dead. here on this show a short time ago, brett anderson described the moment he learned the news. >> you know, i did not have any clue what was going on even though i had detectives right here with me. the only call i got is when the detectives handed me the phone, and i was told that they've got her, and she's fine. >> that must have been quite a moment. what's the first thing you're going to do when you see hannah? >> just let her know that i love her, and her country was looking for her. >> and brett added that he hadn't spoken to hannah yet. he's heading to idaho. he will be reunited with her, and he'll have to talk of her
5:03am
mother and 8-year-old brother. it is unclear whether she already knows of that, either events at the house where their bodies were found or maybe from law enforcers or the medical team assessing her psychologically and physically. there's clearly an awful lot for her to process, guys. back to you. >> absolutely, dominic live for us this morning in los angeles. and as we told you, hannah anderson now safe and scheduled to reunite with her father this morning. as dominic was just talking about, that healing process. what will it be like for that family now? what will hannah be dealing with as we move forward? ed smart is one of the few people with firsthand experience in a situation like this. of course, his own daughter, elizabeth smart, was abducted, held captive for nine months before being found. he joins us now to give us some insight into what a family might be going through. ed, nice to see you this morning. just your reaction this morning as you learn about the impending reuniting of this family. >> just so excited. i mean, that morning -- that
5:04am
afternoon that i was reunited with elizabeth, i was just overwhelmed. i mean, been on this roller coaster, and obviously he has been with his wife and son, deceased now, but to find out that she's -- hannah's still alive and that she's goihe's go seeing her very soon. i'm sure he's so excited and can hardly wait. i'm certain that she feels the same. i think one of the most important things, though, that's going to happen is for hannah to be able to move forward for her to understand that what happened was not her fault. in so many cases there's this manipulation by the captor that makes them feel somehow it was their fault or they held some responsibility. and certainly this reunification is going to be one in which she is so excited to have this nightmare over with, to be back with someone.
5:05am
she has some trust in. and then the important part is going to be to know that what happened, she held no responsibility for and that she's able to start reuniting with her family and friends and finding that normal. >> and how long does that take, would you say, ed? it must be such a bewildering experience for a minor child to be kidnapped. how long before the child typically sort of gets back into the groove of family life? >> you know, i don't think you can put a time frame on it specifically. but i think the more comfortable -- it was indicated to me that when elizabeth came back into our family, it was going to be like a rebirth. and the importance of getting those bonds, those relationships back together. the sooner that can happen, the quicklier it can happen for her to move forward. >> ed, what advice do you have
5:06am
for her father if he's still watching fox this morning before he gets on that flight? >> you know, i just want him to know how happy everyone is for him and to know that he needs to be there to help his daughter understand that she does not hold responsibility for anything that has happened. that this person was sick. he had a major problem, and that it's important for her to understand that and be able to start moving forward. >> i think that's such an important point because we asked him this morning if he had ever heard anything from his daughter about this guy because she had mentioned a friend that she had found certain things that he had done creepy. but brett had mentioned, the father, that he didn't know those things. that he had only learned them from the same reports that were trickling out as well. this idea then that she may feel some responsibility for not alerting authorities or she may have felt that she could have done something to have stopped this, that must weigh on her, i
5:07am
imagine. and that must be very difficult. and that's something that he is going to have to deal with her and help her through this process. >> well, you know, we don't know what kind of manipulation he performed on her and how he was able to get her to do what he wanted. you know, many times it's a threat of family, and obviously she's already seen part of her family hurt and the possibility of something happening further certainly is a controlling factor in getting her to do what he wanted her to do. so it's very difficult for her, i'm sure, but at this point i think that at least her father is there, and they'll be reunited shortly has got to be a huge relief and something that she can hardly wait for. >> well, one good factor here is that he is gone. he's dead. he was killed yesterday by federal agents. i remember watching the trial of your daughter's captor and feeling so sorry for your
5:08am
daughter and for your family that she had to see this guy again. do you think it's going to be easier for hannah to put this behind her since he's no longer there? >> absolutely. there's no threat of any further abduction, of anything coming from him. so i think that definitely is going to be something she's not going to have to worry about going through a trial or anything else that comes out. it's just time to, you know, cut this nightmare off and start moving forward and finding that new normal and how they walk together in the future. >> ed, real quickly, is it normal for the daughter not to talk to the father? she was found last night. the father has not talked to her over the phone, even. >> you know, nobody knows what those circumstances are. certainly, you know, lois was dying to be there and wanted to be able to, you know, reconnect immediately with elizabeth. so i have no idea what the
5:09am
circumstances are, but certainly it's going to be a joyous moment. >> well, ed, we appreciate you joining us this morning. unfortunately we're out of time, but we'd be remiss if we didn't ask you how your daughter is doing this morning. >> elizabeth is doing great. and we're so thankful for everyone's help in bringing her back because i'm sure that hannah's father is. miracles do happen. >> amen. >> ed smart, thank you for getting up early with us on this sunday morning. perhaps no one who has a better perspective on this could talk with us about this this morning. thank you, ed. >> thank you. >> thank you. and now to some other headlines this morning. a string of car bombings across iraq leaving 69 people dead and dozens more injured. the attacks targeting families celebrating the holy month of ramadan. there are signs that the attacks were coordinated by al qaeda, and many happening within an hour of one another at cafes and at markets. the u.s. has condemned the attacks and is offering a $10 million reward for any information that helps kill or

5:12am
missing. this is from the waldo canyon fire a couple of years ago, actually last summer that burned about 18,000 acres. and that area very prone to flash flooding now. this is the fourth flood they've seen since this time. but very devastating morning for them. weather improves a tiny bit in that area today. go to our weather maps. you see temps looking very nice. 61 in denver. manitow springs just to the west. there will be potentially a little more rain, although i think a little less in that area today. here's a look at your radar. the southeast, you're starting out looking good. as the day heats up, more thunderstorms there. the northeast, a spectacular day. we'll see a few showers move through the d.c. area. some heavy rain this morning in across parts of iowa and minnesota. and we'll see severe weather across parts of nebraska later on today. all right, guys. back to you inside. >> thank you, rick. coming up, president obama finally answering questions about the so-called phony scandal saying we have nothing

seems like an odd thing to point out. the president finally answering some of these questions, this was one of the scandals, the nsa, we're not spying. we're not looking at your e-mails. we're not doing any of this. this is just collection of things. we're making some efforts now to be more transparent. did the president do well by that? did he go far enough? >> well, my guess is it depends on where you stand on the issue of government surveillance. a lot of people like the idea and think it's important and has helped kept us safe. of course, it didn't start with this president. it started with bush and cheney back in that administration. and, in fact, some conservatives think that he went too far, that he, in the effort to deal with the outrage from the left wing of his base, was saying, in effect, you know, maybe putting too many constraints on government surveillance. as far as the left wing is concerned, they didn't think it was nearly enough. and i think what they're particularly concerned with is
5:18am
that these are all reforms at the back end of the process when they want reforms at the front end, mainly not a question of what you do with all the information you get, but whether or not you get all the information in the first place, that's what a lot of those people are concerned about. >> so chris, the president said in his press conference on friday that he, in fact, had been working on these reforms before ed snowden leaked all this data to "the guardian." that struck me as ludicrous. do you believe that? >> well, yeah, because he did, in his speech to the national defense university in may, indicated that he wanted to try to recalibrate how we fight the war on terror and how we do surveillance. but there's no question -- and it certainly raises a little bit of an issue about all of the outrage that the administration expressed about ed snowden and his leaks, the fact that they admitted that the reason they came out at this particular time and in such a public way was because of the fact that ed snowden had released it and people knew about it.
5:19am
so i think that they were intending to do it but not this fast and certainly not this openly. >> chris, for the first time, the president revealed a sealed indictment talking about bk benghazi. and he also said he was going to bring justice to those involved. too little, too late, and what do you make of all this? >> well, it certainly was odd. there's a reason that they seal an indictment. it's supposed to be secret. and the fact that the president would talk about it in a news conference and basically disclose the fact that the white house had leaked it, he said we made you aware of the sealed indictment. well, in fact, we did know about it a day before through an anonymous leak. now we kind of know that it came from either the white house or somebody in the administration. you know, look. has it been 11 months? would we liked to have seen the people responsible for the killing of these four americans including the u.s. ambassador, chris stevens, brought to justice the next day? absolutely. but, you know, if we find them, if we track them down, if we get them, i guess people will be happy about it at that point.
5:20am
you know, it does raise one question, though, which he's dealing with it as a law enforcement matter when some people say it should have been dealt with as part of the war on terror and we shouldn't have had to worry about indictments, we should have just taken these guys out the way we routinely do with much less provocation in the cases of the members of al qaeda in yemen or pakistan. >> it's an interesting point, some of which you'll be diving into on your show, among other topics, the 2016 race and the tensions with russia. who's coming occupy your show today? >> we're going to be talking first of all to john mccain who's just back from the middle east and trying to deal with the near civil war in egypt. we'll talk to him about the nsa program, about russia, about al qaeda, as the president declaring victory too quickly. and then we'll talk presidential politics because as we know, reince priebus of the rnc, chairman of the party, is threatening to cut off nbc and cnn for their hillary clinton projects with joe trippi and

welcome back. a texas day-care owner was charged with multiple counts of endangering a child after she gave them benadryl without their parents' permission. after one of those incidents 4-year-old clara felton died after receiving a lethal dose of the drug. but the reason this day-care owner is able to be charged at all is due to a texas bill called nate's law created in 2011. the parents of that bill, brad and laura king, join us now with their story. brad and laura, thanks for joining us on the show this morning. we appreciate it. >> thank you for having us.
5:25am
>> thank you. >> for our audience who might not be familiar with your story, your 3-year-old baby, nathan, at the time, take us through what happened to you and your family. >> we -- he went to a day care that we really respected and loved. and we knew that she loved him. on the day of november 13th, i was contacted at work on my cell phone from her number and talked to a policeman that said that he was found unresponsive and that he would be headed to the hospital. we assumed it was sids. it was later declared that he died of accidental suffocation. but through the autopsy, we found that he had benadryl in his system. and that prompted us to start looking into legislation for unauthorized medication of a child. >> brad, as you then went on
5:26am
this mission, and your family, to make sure this didn't happen to other children, when you heard about this current story at this day-care center, what did you think? >> it was -- you know, it wasn't -- to be honest with you, it wasn't shocking because we understand that this happens a lot. in the child-care system. it's appalling that it's happening. but we know that it's occurring. it's not only occurring in our state, but it's occurring across the country. and so yes, appalled i guess is the word i would say for someone that we put our trust in as parents to care for our children. people that we likely don't know very well, that have our precious gift in their hands. >> what's amazing to me, laura, is that this is even happening at all. i can understand -- i didn't realize, i mean, in the state of texas that you couldn't do this. you could do this without a parents' permission slip. of course, since the passing of
5:27am
your son, this is now law thanks to nate's law down there. but how do other parents who are taking their children to day care, how do they assume that they are protecting their children in this situation? i mean, to learn that this day care was just simply giving him benadryl to put him to sleep, not because he had some sort of an allergy or some sort of affliction? >> right. you know, it is -- it is so scary to think that this is happening. and the only thing that parents can do is to talk to their provider, to let them know that this is not okay. that you will authorize medication use if they contact you. and in the case of like benadryl to put them to sleep, i know if my day-care provider contacted me and said that they are really fussy or they couldn't go down to sleep, then i as a parent can make that choice then to go pick up my child because at that
5:28am
point, you know, it's my decision and not their decision. >> it's amazing, brad, when you hear about the other kids in this school because the parents then went and independently verified that almost all of the kids in that class had been given this drug. >> absolutely. and i think that that's the key message here is that with parents also letting their child care providers know, there are only two states in the country that we can tell have a law that makes this a crime. and i think it's important for parents to get out there and talk to their legislatures and try to get a bill passed in their state to make this a criminal offense because child-care providers are doing this every day. and they know it's wrong. but now we need to let them know that it's not only wrong, but it's a crime. >> brad and laura, you guys are doing very important work. >> thank you. >> i couldn't imagine something like this happening.

more than 250 police officers and fbi agents stormed the woods in a remote section of idaho, killing james dimaggio and rescuing kidnapped california teen hannah anderson. ending the desperate week-long manhunt that was the focus of this country's attention. >> so how does an operation like this go down? joining us now to weigh in is andrea deerden, a spokesperson for the ada county, idaho, the sheriff's department there. good morning. thanks for joining us. >> good morning. what was the process here? how does something like this go down? >> it's a challenging rescue, of course. we were putting every resource
5:34am
we could into making sure that we brought hannah home as safely as possible as quickly as possible. so what happened yesterday was that we had teams flying over the area. they were believed to be seen on wednesday. and so those teams did spot a camp near a lake in this wilderness area. they were to get close enough -- they were able to get a visual close enough that they were able to see that there were two people who did appear to be hannah and dimaggio. because of the terrain, they weren't able to land close by, though they took two of the hostage rescue teams into the area as close as they could land. they had to be seen to be hiking about 2 1/2 hours to get close enough to surround this camp, be able to see yes, in fact, they did have hannah and dimaggio there. and as soon as they were able to see that the two were separate and move in safely, that's when they rescued hannah. >> so that moment, because we
5:35am
when we talked to brett anderson, the father of hannah this morning on the show, he was unclear as to how exactly this unfolded itself. there was a separation between them as this team had surrounded him, the tactical team had surrounded them. they were able to see that he was separated from her, and then they eliminated him. did they hesitate on that? did they try to move in and a firefight unfolded? did he try to return fire? how did that happen? >> we don't know that yet. the fbi shooting review team is on its way here, and that's exactly what that team will determine. they will interview everybody that was involved, all of the witnesses, and determine exactly what happened in those final minutes of that rescue. >> okay. we spoke a moment ago to hannah's father who's on his way out to idaho right now, i believe. he said he had not spoken to his daughter. do you have any idea why that would be? >> during any of these things, she has, of course, been through a traumatic experience. we have an expert with her from
5:36am
the fbi. they do what is very best for hannah. they determine kind of how all of that will go today. but they, i know, will get -- or, you know, very interested in reuniting her with her father as quickly as possible. >> one of the things that we learned from brett this morning on the show was the amber alert and how he said he wanted other fathers and other families to know out there that when you see an amber alert come through, pay attention to it. don't disregard it. that process of the amber alert, that seems to have -- that was the reason that they were able to move in on this guy. >> without a doubt. when those -- when those horseback riders who were in the wilderness area and saw these two on wednesday, they didn't have any reason to believe -- or they didn't have any reason to intervene. they described their interaction with these two as being odd but nothing immediately alarming. but once they got home and saw that amber alert, that's exactly what they saw. and once they got home and saw that, they knew that they had
5:37am
just seen hannah. and that information from those horseback riders is exactly what led us to this area, and we were able to pinpoint that area, find the vehicle and, of course, once that happened, all of this unfolded relatively quickly. and she was safe within, you know, a little more than a day after finding that car. >> andrea, what happened to hannah over the last week when she was in the woods with this man? >> that's all -- you know, all part of the investigation that they hope to, you know, get as much information as they can during that. but that information right now is not available. >> andrea dearden, we know you have a lot of work to do today, so we appreciate you taking some time out to talk with us this morning. >> no problem. you're welcome. now to other headlines. two more suspected members of al qaeda killed in the latest drone strike in yemen. it's the ninth suspected u.s. drone strike there within two weeks. the strikes have left at least 38 suspected militants dead. the u.s. flew its diplomatic staff out of yemen and shut down our embassy there because of an

5:47am
this war on coal is just him doubling down on something that's going to be very destructive for west virginia. >> so the president hasn't hid his anti-coal agenda. he's been pretty straightforward about it. he doesn't like coal, doesn't think we should get our power from coal. tell me the effects on your state of that policy. how has it hurt west virginia? >> it's going to be devastating. and you're right, tucker, he talked about in his first term about his environmental policy. but he has gotten a lot more specific in recent years, and certainly in the last few months and now into his final term, he has doubled down on his attack of the coal industry, the coal jobs, the things that fuel west virginia. what this will mean for west virginia is significant loss of jobs. we have 60,000 miners in west virginia, and that industry is going to take a real hit. but it's not just the miner families and their children and the benefits and the retirees
5:48am
that depend upon those jobs to pay their pension and health care benefits. it also means increased utility rates for all of west virginians. >> yeah. >> you know, over 90% of the fuel powered in west virginia is coal driven. over 14% in the nation. so yes, it is about a family in west virginia struggling to make ends meet with a good job that the president is attacking. but it impacts all of west virginia and all of the united states and higher costs for energy prices. >> so looking at poll numbers and election results, it strikes me that obama's probably less popular in west virginia than any other state. he's just not liked in west virginia. that's very clear. why are there any democratic office holders left in west virginia? >> well, there's one less office holder as of last -- a week ago wednesday. i am serving in my third term in the state senate. that wraps up next year. i'm still a sitting state

by. >> reporter: once her father arrives in idaho this morning and sees hannah they'll have to start to deal with the trauma of that together. here's how he explained that here on "fox & friends" this morning. take a listen. >> something we'll have to take day by day and see what kind of help she's going to need and what kind of help for that i'm going to need. and we'll move on from there. we have plenty of things we need to do. >> that is a mighty challenge for them. america was praying for hannah all week. those prayers appeared to be answer. she was found, safe, and from what we understand she was unharmed by a man who is said to have an unhealthy obsession with her. it's the best news possible we have to say. the search involved 250 fbi officials and local law enforcers and it ended in that confrontation with joe dimaggio
6:03am
inth in that campsite in idaho. in san diego, the associates there are working through what happened at dimaggio's house. we are expecting updates throughout the day from both agencies and we'll be covering them right here on fox news. do stay with us. back to you. >> we appreciate it. how does an operation like this go down? joining us now to weigh in, homicide detective and fox news contributor rod wheeler. >> good morning. >> do we know anything about the specifics of the confrontation between dimaggio and the some 250 fbi agents and local law enforcement? was he armed? was there a shootout, do we know what happened? >> no one from the agencies has indicated quite yet exactly what led to the shooting. however, i can tell you it has to be one of two things. first of all this was a very delicate operation at the fbi s.w.a.t. officers had to endure. the reason is because they had a hostage situation that they were dealing with, obviously with
6:04am
hannah. anytime you have a situation like that you have to be meticulous in your approach. one misstep and it could be disastrous for the hostage. obviously they took a lot of time, they had to position themselves properly. we don't know right now, this is going to come out, hopefully later today, whether or not when this guy dimaggio saw these officers whether or not he grabbed a weapon or maybe even tried to harm hannah. we don't know that yet. it's one of the two. as a result of such, the fbi agents which are highly trained, decided that because of the aggression of dimaggio they had to take this guy out. >> did they first find out by flying helicopter over? if so, how would that not cause the abductor to run or flee before all the agents were able to move in? >> that's an excellent question. let's just go back a couple of days real quickly. the reason i say that, remember there was a couple of folks on horsebacks and they saw dimaggio
6:05am
and hannah. well, when they got home they obviously saw the amber alert and decided to call the cops. then the police found the vehicle. police knew that dimaggio and hannah was probably in this little area up there which is kind of like the wilderness mountainous area. they knew that. they formed a dragnet, with this dragnet they were able to circle that entire area and used several helicopters to cross over that area. they could not land in that area because of the mountainous area. they dropped a number of officers on on both sides of where they believe these individuals were and they actually -- on foot they had to go about two hours on foot through the mountains and that's when they actually saw them. they did see a campsite which was smoking. a lot of smoke was coming from ca campsite. as a result of that they figured that is where dimaggio was and holding hannah. >> these guys are hero, two hours of hiking to surround this guy. >> that's right. >> what is protocol in this situation, when they arrive and
6:06am
circle the wagons around him, do they grab a bull horn and try to engage verbally at first? >> the first thing you want to do is make sure no matter what happens, the hostage, in this case hannah, was going to be protected. that's our number one priority. and so as a result of such, when they come in, usually we like to surprise people. usually it's under the cover of darkness, when they come in, hopefully they can do it without making any noise and the person won't resist. it sounds to me, again, i'm not there, it sounds to me like some kind of way dimaggio became aware that the police was closing in on him. it sounds to me like he probably went for a weapon. that's the only time that the fbi would have taken this guy out. remember, our goal is to take the guy to us in, not necessarily to kill him, unless the circumstances dictate otherwise. >> as this investigation unfolds this morning, we understand they'll be looking at exactly how the bullets started to fly. >> that's right. >> that's part of the firearms investigation from this tactical team. we heard from a spokesperson
6:07am
this morning that's right. >> how long could that investigation take. >> that's a team of 24 to 30 officers, right here out of washington, the fbi's office. they flew out that way last night. so they are there today on the ground. they're going to look at a lot of ballistics, examinations of the bullets, the types of weapons that possibly was used by this guy, dimaggio. all kind of things. a lot of forensic evidence will come into this. again, they want to make sure the proper procedures were followed. again, it sounds to me like the fbi did a good job in this case, guys. >> i'll say. rod wheeler, we appreciate your expertise. thanks for joining us. >> thanks. we have new video of the u.s. embassy in cairo. it's opening for the very first time since that terror threat shut it down, shut down the outpost across the middle east and north africa. 18 out of the 19 u.s. embassies in the area are re-opened this morning. the u.s. embassy in yemen will stay closed over ongoing concerns of violence there. the embassies were closed last
6:08am
week after american intelligence officers intercepted a message between top al qaeda operatives about plans for a major attack. and a vigil held last night in connecticut for the four people that were killed in that tragic plane crash, the mother of the two children that were killed on the ground weeping there in loved ones arms at the vigil. a neighbor say they tried to save 13-year-old brantley and her 1-year-old sister, madison michelle. >> i immediately ran into the house. they were upstairs. i ran upstairs. there was a crib and disturbing, flipped the crib over, thoroughly looked in the other bed, looked under the bed, in the closet, there was nothing. ran downstairs and the fire intensified. >> the pilot of the plane bill henningsgard and his 13-year-old son was also killed. the ntsb has removed the plane to take it apart one part at a time to find out why this crash happened.
6:09am
the preliminary report should be out in two weeks. a row of trees near a church appear to be raining. drops of liquid flowing off of their branches. this is happening at st. john's cathedral in fresno, california. one woman first noticed it while she was praying there with another woman. >> oh, my gosh. i hadn't felt good and right now when the water is hitting me, i feel peace. the lord said peace i give you, peace be with you. i know it's coming from god. >> the church would not go on camera but said that this happens about this time every year. i guess church representatives wouldn't go on camera. we could have put the church on camera. >> was it raining in fresno? maybe that could have answered it for them. >> no, it's not rainy season out there. they could certainly use some. i came outside. there's a crowd. take a look, they all scatter. they're afraid of the microphone getting close. i said don't worry, i can call
6:10am
you out from afar. there you go. thanks for coming way over there. let's take a look at your weather map. let's take a look at video real quickly, then we'll talk about what this is. tonight is the perseid meteor shower. it peaks around august 12th and 13th. you should be able to see between 50 and 80 of these meteors going every hour. very good time. now go back to the weather maps and take a look at this. pick where you are on the map, if you're thinking about going out. this right here is eastern time. you see up at the top, midnight tonight, that's east coast time. that would be 9:00 on the west coast. we'll go forward in time, pick where you are, cloud cover, forecast cloud cover and we'll go towards midnight on the west, 3:00 a.m. on the east. places across the west is going to be spectacular. plenty of clear skies, northern plains as well. we'll see clouds across areas of kansas and oklahoma. and go towards around 3:00 a.m. on the west.
6:11am
you're still looking good. cloud cover across parts of the east. overall not a bad time for watching this meteor shower. tomorrow night will be another good night to watch it. temps as you're waking up, looking like this. down across parts of south, still muggy. as the day heats up, we'll see showers firing again. over the next few days a few areas will get another 2 to 3 inches of rain. that's the same spot that's been saturated with rain over the last 10 to 12 days. could see more thunderstorms and flooding in places like wichita, little rock and the nashville area. all right, guys, clayton, you going to watch the perseid shower. >> i have good intentions. if i don't fall asleep first. he ran into bullets to save american lives in a firefight with the taliban, killing a number of them. but one afghan translator is being blocked by the u.s. state department from legally coming to this country despite the threats he faces. plus -- >> the reason is, i'll be very
6:12am
specific about this, is patch, from an experience -- abel put that camera down right now. abel, you're fired. out. >> when the ceo rant going viral that he doesn't want his picture taken. that's coming up, straight ahead. so... [ gasps ] these are sandra's "homemade" yummy, scrumptious bars. hmm? i just wanted you to eat more fiber. chewy, oatie, gooeyness... and fraudulence. i'm in deep, babe. you certainly are.

6:15am
welcome back. i'm sure you're all familiar with dakota meyer, marine corporal. he's the only living marine to be given the medal of honor. he had a translator with him so he could protect his life. goes by the name of hafez.
6:16am
he's been living there, trying to get to the united states and he's not been able to get to the united states. he's been fighting for a visa and the obama administration apparently has been delaying this visa for him for a long time now and he's fighting for his life. >> we should be clear, translator, though he was, doesn't fully capture his role. >> right. >> we spoke to bing west, a former marine corps officer himself yesterday, who pointed out that hafez picked up a rifle and killed a number of taliban in at least one firefight. those actions put his life in grave danger. >> and helped pull out americans. >> that's exactly right, risked his life on behalf of americans, including dakota meyer. to remain in the country putses had life in great peril. this is a life or death question. >> and dakota has said if we don't get him out he will be killed. hafez has applied for a visa, four years ago this happened. four years ago he applied and
6:17am
it's still on hold. >> the obama administration is slow walking these visa applications, meanwhile trying to get amnesty and the immigration bill. we spoke to bing west yesterday on "fox & friends." here is his perspective on this. >> congress has put aside 5,000 slots for these men who risked their lives for us and the state department has allowed only about 200 of the 5,000 to come in. because they're afraid to death. they're just -- the state department is just a bunch of bureaucrats sitting on their duffs. they won't allow the generals in afghanistan who have approved these interpreters, they won't allow them to come into the united states. it's a shame. >> look, just because nobody is calling in public anyway for wholesale immigration from any of these war zones, from iraq or afghanistan, or even from pakistan, and yet there are residents in all those countries, that have helped the united states in important ways and risked their lives to do so,
6:18am
including the pakistani physician who famously helped u.s. forces find osama bin laden and was promptly imprisoned by pakistani s. in the face of that, this administration sat idle and did nothing to get him sprung. there is an informal contract we make between the people who help us and other countries and the united states. we are in these two cases falling down and not upholding our end. it's shameful. >> meyer said it here on fox and says it in his new book, i couldn't have gotten out of this firefight without his help. he helped me carry guys out, he helped me save american lives. to turn our backs on them, he know where he's living. we know we could swoop in and get this guy out of there and help him and get him to the united states. why this visa is being slow walked is beyond me. >> it says that -- i'm reading this article now, they've signed off on the application, a general did, general dunford, then it was green lighted by the u.s. embassy in kabul and then the application was sent to the
6:19am
u.s. state department visa's department for vetting according to the person who wrote this article. it's remained there ever since. you know, listen, i know the president gets a lot of criticism for taking vacation, for playing golf, you know, anyone who has a job needs vacation, needs golf. i don't understand how when someone's life is on the line, who has helped americans, how you can go on vacation without going in. all he has to do is probably get a few phone calls and get this guy to come to america where he'll be safe. he saved the lives of so many individuals, men, women, brothers, sisters, sons, daughters, families are getting their loved ones back but i don't understand how our administration can go on vacation when individuals' lives are at risk. >> memo to afghan translators, if you want to come to the united states, just fly to mexico and walk over like everybody else. we won't bother you. >> 11 million people do that everywhere. >> find us on twitter at
